About the property

2 bedrooms, 5 sleeps, 1 bathroom, large private roof terrace, Wi-fi, AC, SatTV

Casa Asmara is located at the lower part of Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the main street running through Noto’s historic centre. The cathedral, main churches, theatre and museum are all within walking distance. Parking is possible in front of the apartment during non-working hours, however, there are numerous other free parking possibilities close by. A stroll through to the upper town via the many staircases offers a multitude of views over the rooftops of the town. There are a number of nice restaurants in the vicinity of Casa Asmara offering typical regional cuisine at a reasonable price. Of the many cafes in the town, Café Sicilia in the central pedestrian area is the most outstanding for its excellent range of Sicilian pastries, granita’s and jams. Two small grocery stores and an organic shop are located a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. Local wine is available straight from the barrel just a stone’s throw down the road. The newly refurbished apartment combines traditional and modern elements. It comprises a living room with integrated kitchen, one bathroom and two large bedrooms. The kitchen has an electric / gas oven, fridge and essential kitchen appliances allowing guests to fully self-cater. Both bedrooms and the main living room are equipped with modern air conditioner-heater units. The two generously sized bedrooms both have double beds with one of the rooms also having an in built single bed suitable for children. The bathroom is fully equipped with shower unit, bidet and other high quality fittings. The apartment is accessed via an inner courtyard and has its individual spacious roof terrace providing views over the old town. Its strategic location provides easy access to restaurants, cafes and places of interest while offering a quiet space for rest and relaxation. 10 minute drive away is the Vendicari Natural Reserve, with its protected coastline and its breathtaking views and paths, a heaven to nature lovers and birdwatchers, its archaeological marvels and its pure beauty are part of Sicily´s most treasured heritage.

About Mark Hayton

We are an English / German couple currently resident in Indonesia.

Mark Hayton purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mark Hayton chose Noto

We were attracted to Sicily because it is still largely unspoilt by large scale commercial tourism. The region offers an abundance of interesting places, lovely countryside, cuisine, wine all combined with authentic Italian lifestyle and friendly people.

What makes this apartment unique

In 2008 we totally refurbished the apartment combining modern and original elements together to create an apartment offering a high standard of accommodation whilst retaining its original character.

Very nice & perfectly located flat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Asmara for a week in July, with our twins aged 9 years old. Noto is a very good place to stay and visit south-east Sicily. The location is in the town center but in a quiet area. The flat is simply furnished but clean and functional, beds are comfortable and air conditioning is working properly. The terrace is lovely. We really enjoyed our stay!

Casa Asmara

  • 5 of 5

A very nice apartment in a great location. Not much to look at from the outside, but inside its comfortable and spacious if not luxurious. the beds are good in each of the two large bedrooms; the bathroom is modern with a good shower, the outside terrace is great for eating and, despite the central location, the whole apartment is quiet at night. Its less than 100m from central Noto - a wonderful baroque town - and overall is a great location for visiting Siracusa, Modica, Ragusa, though a car is vital.

We were concerned about parking being such a central location, but had no trouble with street parking about 100m from the apartment.

A second two-person sofa would have been welcome (for 4 adults sharing) and we have suggested this to the owners. On this basis alone its more 4.5* than the 5*rating we have given (as we can only give whole numbers!).

Otherwise, recommended without hesitation

Casa Asmara Noto

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideally situated in the town of Noto with easy walking access to excellent restaurants, coffee shops and historic sites. The apartment was furnished to a very high standard with high quality fixtures to make an extremely enjoyable and relaxing stay. The apartment was exceptionally well maintained and clean and the balcony proved an ideal place to sit and relax, both in the evening time with a bottle of local wine and during the heat of the day under the shade of the canopy. The apartment's description was as detailed in the brochure and the owner's agent was extremely helpful and punctual. Noto itself is an ideal place to stay to visit many historic attractions and excellent beaches. The apartment was very spacious and I would highly recommend the apartment.

great place ,great location

  • 5 of 5

The accomadation was as advertised. The location was perfect. We particularly enjoyed the terrace and the barbeque. The house was well equipped and very clean. Having access to WIFI was most helpful.

We enjoyed the local shops and particularly like the Liberty restauant where the food was excellent and you could purchase inexpensive local wine from their winery.

The managers of the accommadation were very helpful and a couple times when we had a problem with the WIFI they came immediately and sorted it out. they wefe easy to reach and very helpful.

We would highly recommend this place for your stay in Noto.
